SCOM Agent Install Error


Yesterday I was doing an installation of SCOM 2007 SP1, and i get an Install error. The client was a Windows Server 2003 SP2 Enterprise edition.


I get the following error in the event viewer:

Searching at Google learned that it appeared to be a problem with WMI on the Windows Server 2003 target clients.


I build a fix.bat file that you must run before you install the Agent Client.


The script does the follows:


He copied the *.mof and the *.mfl from a working Server 2003 Enterprise SCOM Agent, and overwrote the existing copies in the failed Agent.

You do this with the following batch file:


rem Copy files

Xcopy \\servername\AgentFix\Wbem c:\windows\system32\wbem /i /y


rem change dir and do mofcomp


cd \windows\system32\wbem

For /f %%s in ('dir /b *.mof *.mfl') do mofcomp %%s


rem restart services

net stop ccmexec

net stop winmgmt

net start winmgmt

net start ccmexec



When he's completed, you must restart the WMI service and you're finished.

SCOM Agent install was able to complete successfully.
